Matchy using #3,4 &5

My outfit today uses Angie's cohesive accessories tips 3, 4, & 5. Black and white added to a volume of black AG jeans and Express turtleneck. Oxfords are MizMoz, bag was thrifted and scarf was a gift. What do you think? Is this too matchy or pleasantly cohesive?
ETA change of scarf photo. Better?

    Well done, and I love it, Joy! It's beautiful and cohesive.

    I like #1, but for #2 I will rather wear black bag or red or some other color. I like some color with black and white.

    Not too matchy, well I kinda love matchy.

    Since my mind is all focused on color right now, I thought I would mention that I like that creamy color of the collar on you.

    Thank you for your comments, Vicki. Mirjana, and Denise. Mirjana, I used a black fringe bag this morning but eyed a bright red one.
    Denise, thank you for mentioning the creamy color on the vest collar. I got the vest at NAS but have only worn it recently in cooler weather. I hope that it will work with winter white as well as black.

    Very nice and I love matchy. But I don't consider black and white to be matchy. Looks great, well thought out.

    I adore this, Joy, not too matchy-matchy in my book with all the different textures and patterns. Love the graphic vibe here.

    Retailgirl , I'd not thought about it.  Maybe black and white are too common to be considered matchy.  I changed the scarf to a black and white scarf with a bit of red.

    Inge, your opinion is very important to me.  Thank you for your confidence.

    Perfect amount of matchy to my eye. Grey for a colour, and black-and-white colourblock for a print, is all the visual noise I need.

  • Joy replied 2 years ago

    LOL, Angie. I'll definitely take cute and cuddly.
    L'Abeille, thank you.

    Matchy to the fab degree!

  • Firecracker replied 2 years ago

    I like it, Joy! Both scarves are good. I do think the vest will go nicely with winter white, too. It looks great on you.

    Shevia and Sharan, thank you for your helpful comments. I value your thoughts on this outfit.
